"Carl Weagant's sea epic, The Cruise Of The Carlsark, 3000 ft., 16mm., is a complete film record of the voyage of the ketch, Carlsark, across the Atlantic. Three Cornell men began the adventurous trip at Ithaca, N. Y., sailing through the Erie Canal system into the St. Lawrence and thence out into the Atlantic. Crossing the ocean in the little yawl, they cruised through the Mediterranean and returned home, stopping at the Canaries. The film record of the trip, made by Mr. Weagant, who was skipper as well as cameraman, is almost as important an advent in the annals of amateur movie making as the trip itself is in yachting circles. Excellent in exposure throughout, the picture contains few of the errors that would have been excusable. The continuity follows the chart of the voyage but the reels of sea scenes in the midst of the film can be considered as a separate subject. These scenes, telling the every day life aboard the ketch and the exciting incidents on the trip, are as interesting and as well photographed as any amateur made sea pictures that have come to the attention of League headquarters." Movie Makers, Dec. 1930, 759.
"The CARLSARK was a yacht owned by Carl L. Weagant, who sailed from Ithaca, New York, to Ithaca, Greece, shortly after graduating from Cornell University in 1929. The other crew members were Henry M. Devereux, Joseph Rummler, and Dudley Schoales. Weagant later wrote for YACHTING magazine and invested in salvage projects. In 1934, he committed suicide, citing financial failure as the reason in a note to his family" Cornell University Library.
Cornell University Library holds the Carlsark Collection, ca. 1920-1973, which includes a map of the yacht's voyage captured in this film.
